Cafe Malta, the "Tex-Med" restaurant we told you about way back in October, has announced a projected opening date of December 19th. The "European trattoria" boasts international influences. According to owners Jessica and Nick Goulding:
Jessica and Nick Goulding met in the restaurant and bar scene of New York City 11 years ago, moving to Austin in 2004. Nick is currently the general manager at Habana Restaurant on South Congress. Jessica tells Eater Austin that the chef will be Keith Karp, originally from Michigan but currently a restaurant consultant in Austin for over a year. Flavors will include inspiration from coastal Italy, Spain, France, Greece, and Morocco. Cafe Malta will also feature a full bar.Stay tuned to their Facebook page for more updates and photos as the opening day draws closer.
